Life Member Fred Richardson had the following comment on his donation card. "The Museum is operated 100% by volunteers and the remarkable progress made by this group is very commendable indeed. My enthusiastic compliments to the entire team!


Long time member Dr. Morton Schoenberg says "Thanks for all you guys (sic) do! Best Regards!

Charter Member #3, Just Wold, says Good Work Guys! (sic) Great Progress.

At least ten other members have stated "Keep up the good work".

Fundraiser stands at almost $14,000 just ten days after donation letter was mailed!

Allan, probably all the fundraiser comments should go into one thread, rather than many seperate ones.  Let's use this thread as the master thread.  If you would put the others into this one, I'll remove the other two.

Thanks, James

We are ahead of last year in receipts for fundraiser - now at $15,000 or 35% of goal in 11 days since mailing.

Individual donations are the same or higher than last year - with hardly any lower.

The 2006 Capital Campaign is over the top as of 11/6/2006, and now sits at over $43,500 with many gifts still due in. (Some of our givers wait until late December or early January for tax reasons.)

Congratulations to all and Happy Holidays!

Hey, if everyone reading this could send in a few dollars more, we could get the total up to $50,000!  How about it, gang?   I'm sending another check tonight!

WE CAN DO THIS!!  Are you with me?

I followed through and sent my "bonus donation" yesterday.  Hopefully we can get that figure up to 50 grand!  Wouldn't that be a great way to begin the new year?

As of December 31, 2006, the 2006 Capital Funds has received $48,550,
and that doesn't count Richard Symmes additional donation!

So far 339 of our 1097 members have given to the Campaign, so if every one else gives $5 ..............

How close did we come to raising $50,000?   I would hope we're almost there!!

Come on folks, let's shake those spare quarters out of our pockets or from under the sofa cushions!
